But if we transported more goods by rail, then the existing constrained corridors we already have in the GTHA would not be as accessible to GO Transit. Fortunately, GO has been able to buy a significant portion of rail they use, but most of that is on lines that see/saw little freight traffic (Richmond Hill, Stouffville). If we start pushing more freight onto rail, then the number of trains operating on the major lines (Milton, Georgetown, Aldershot-Hamilton) will increase and limit GO's expansion into cities along these corridors.

While it's true that shifting to rail would decrease the taxpayer subsidy, we will start to limit our mobility expansion options in the future.
